In case you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a unique transfer code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, as you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from one location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
